Degree Planning Tools


DegreeWorks is a web-based academic advising tool for undergraduates. It helps you map out your studies and identifies courses that fulfill requirements for your major. You'll be able to track graduation requirements you've met and those yet to be completed. You can also create "what if" scenarios to see how your courses might apply to a different major, if you were to change programs. 

You can access DegreeWorks through LEO Online or myODU.

Long Range Course Planning Tool

See when online courses are going to be offered in the future. This tool can help you plan the most efficient progression through your courses. Many courses are offered in the same semester(s) each year, but keep in mind that the schedule is subject to change.

This is a great way to look ahead and to guide a conversation with your advisor.
